Bridging Genes to Ecosystems: Aquatic Science at a Time of Rapid Change


The theme for the meeting is “Bridging Genes to Ecosystems: Aquatic Science at a Time of Rapid Change.” An important aim of this meeting includes working toward an integrative understanding of aquatic systems and fostering collaboration and interaction across the participating societies.

Special Sessions and Plenary Talks


To these ends, the meeting planning committee has developed five special sessions to accompany each of the five meeting plenary talks. The plenary speakers for the meeting are Ginger Armbrust (University of Washington), Stuart Bunn (Australian Rivers Institute), Laurel Larsen (UC Berkeley), Julian Olden (University of Washington), and Patricia Soranno (Michigan State University.)

The five special sessions associated with the plenaries are:
  • Putting Microbial Genomes to Work in Ecosystem Science
  • Communicating the Value of Aquatic and Wetland Ecosystems to the Public and Policy Makers
  • Predicting Ecosystem Thresholds and Regime Shifts
  • Aquatic and Wetland Conservation in the Anthropocene? Principles and Practices for a Rapidly Changing World
  • Large-Scale Limnology – Integrating Terrestrial, Wetland, and Aquatic Interactions across Landscapes
